Comhairle do Dhrochaimsir agus Tuilte – Weather and Possible Flooding Advisory

Jan 28, 2016

Tá Rabhadh Aimsire Stádas Oráiste eisithe ag Met Éireann ó mheánoíche Déardaoin. Dá bharr sin, tá Comhairle Cathrach na Gaillimhe ag moladh go mbeadh an pobal cúramach, go háirithe agus cosúlacht ann go mbeidh sé thar a bheith gaofar agus gairfean geallta anocht, le gaoth aniar aneas ag neartú ina gaoth láidir nó gala, le siotaí a d’fhéadfadh dochar a dhéanamh in áiteanna, go háirithe ar cheantair chóstaí an tuaiscirt agus an iarthair. Athróidh treo na gaoithe go gaoth aniar roimh bhreacadh an lae.  Beidh múraíl scaipthe ann i dtús an lae amárach, ach beidh sí trom agus toirniúil ar feadh tréimhse, sula nglanfaidh sí.

Mar gheall ar an drochaimsir atá tuartha, beidh Carrchlós Pháirc Toft dúnta go dtí an Luan 1 Feabhra. Moltar go láidir do dhaoine a bhfuil feithiclí acu ann iad a thabhairt as a luaithe agus is féidir leo. Tá an aimsir is measa geallta tráthnóna Dé Domhnaigh go dtí an Luan. Tá sé  geallta sách dona deireanach tráthnóna inniu chomh maith agus seans go mbeidh tuilte ann i gCarrchlós Pháirc Toft agus an Promanád. D’fhéadfaí go ndúnfar an Phromanáid ar feadh tréimhsí i rith an deireadh seachtaine, ach coinneoidh Comhairle Cathrach na Gaillimhe súil ghéar ar chúrsaí. Moltar freisin do dhaoine gach feithiclí a fháil sa charrchlós in aice an Phromanáid. Beidh foireann Chomhairle Cathrach na Gaillimhe faoi réir ar feadh an deireadh seachtaine.

 

Following the issuing of a Status Orange weather warning from midnight on Thursday night by Met Éireann, Galway City Council advises caution, particularly with the possibility of extremely windy or stormy tonight, with southwest winds increasing from strong to gale force, with some damaging gusts in places, especially in northern and western coastal areas. The winds will veer more westerly before dawn. The rain will be patchy and scattered early on, but will become heavy and possibly thundery for a time, before clearing around dawn.

Therefore, Toft Park Car Park on The Prom will be closed until Monday 1st Feb. The Council advises people with  vehicles parked there to remove them as soon as possible. The worst of the weather is due on Sunday afternoon through to Monday. Later on this evening (Thursday )will also be windy, with a possibility of flooding in Toft Car Park and the Prom. The Prom may be closed for periods over the weekend but Galway City Council will monitor the situation. People are also advised not to leave their cars in either of the car parks along the Prom. Galway City Council personnel will be on standby all weekend.
